Seattle comedy troupe The Habit returns, minotaurs and Hamlet in tow

After a decade-long hiatus, Seattle comedy troupe The Habit came back in full force in 2011 with a tight, zany show at the Bathhouse Theater. Now, one year later, it looks as though they're going to make, well, a habit of it.

Their latest show, says Habit ringleader Mark Siano, includes a performance of "Hamlet" in Braille and a sketch concerning "everyday life inside a labyrinth where everyone is lost all the time and minotaurs are actually nice guys who make excellent casseroles."

John Osebold (of "Awesome") will blow up the world. And of course there's a dance number. (The Habit is/are known for its/their business-suited dancing — and their gyrations, this time, lead to a smackdown between troupe members as they search for their keys, phones and wallets.)

Expect tightly scripted bedlam, with sound effects.

8 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays through Dec. 1, with additional shows Nov. 28 and Dec. 2, Bathhouse Theatre, 7312 W. Green Lake Drive, Seattle; $17 (800-838-3006 or
